Mails go and mails come with each passing day. In fact, sometimes we are not aware of all the storage that these can end up taking up if we do not keep track of them. For it, Gmail just updated its email app on Android and iOS so you can keep track of how much storage space is taken up by your emails.
The best of all is that not only will you be able to see how much space Gmail occupies in your Google cloud. You’ll also be able to see other data, like how much of this storage has been set aside for Google Photos, Google Drive, and more.
The procedure is extremely simple, almost as simple as creating folders in Gmail. You just have to have the Gmail application downloaded on your mobile, regardless of whether it is iOS or Android. If you already have it, make sure you have it updated to the latest version available, as this is a newly released feature.
So you can see how much space your emails take up in Gmail
Google is offering a new “Storage Used” indicator within its Gmail app. Thus, we can see how much space our data takes up. This function is also compatible if you have more than one account linked to the Gmail app on your mobile device, and you will only have to exchange between them to see the information.
Of course, with the integration of this feature, Google will also takes the opportunity to offer its Google One service.

- Tap on your profile picture, the circle located in the upper right corner.
- You will see a new window open. Here, you’ll see a multi-colored cloud icon, next to the words “Storage used…“. Tap on it.
- Now, the storage management window will open.
It is on this screen where you can see how much space your Gmail emails take up in your Google cloud. Indicated with a red color, you will see on the far right the amount of GB used by the emails. Also, above will show a bar graphwhere you can see how this storage usage compares to other services, and to the rest of the free space.
If you want to free up space, tap on the button Clean up space that appears at the bottom. This will open a window in your preferred browser. It will allow you to review the largest files in each service, such as Google Photos, Gmail or Drive. You can verify them and proceed to free the occupied space, or leave them unchanged.
